ATF Stays Mum on ‘Officer-Involved Death’ of Suspect in Milwaukee

The ATF is keeping quiet about an “officer-involved death” of a suspect in Milwaukee last week.

“I apologize, I know it’s really confusing,” ATF media contact Ashlee Sherrill of the St. Paul field office told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “But we don’t want to compromise the investigation.” 

The Wisconsin Department of Justice is investigating the case.

The ATF was leading an operation Thursday that involved serving an arrest warrant on Bruce Young, who was accused of possessing illegal explosives. Young fled and was under pursuit when he shot himself, according to the Department of Justice.
